Leicester City have been tipped by many to be the club that could break into the top six this season. Manchester United away would seem to be the perfect test to see if those predictions can come true.

Our Betting Tips

Aside from the thrashing of Chelsea on the opening day of the season, Manchester United have not enjoyed the best of starts to this campaign. Leicester do look as if they could cause some problems for opposing sides this year and could snatch a point here.


United haven’t been firing on all cylinders so far – but they do have some exciting young players able to find the net. Leicester also have a very good squad and Jamie Vardy is always able to grab a goal or two.


It looks like Manchester United may struggle to find consistency this season, which could prove a headache for online sportsbooks. There are enough talented players in the squad for the Red Devils to do well – but there seems to be a certain lack of belief that they can finish off games. The home defeat to Palace was a perfect example and Leicester have a good chance to come away from Old Trafford with something from this one.

Head to Head

Manchester United have a very good record in this fixture over the last few years – Leicester’s last victory came back in the 2014/15 season. The last time the Foxes won at Old Trafford was over 20 years ago.


  • For all their experienced players – and highly rated strikers – Manchester United’s top goal scorer in the Premier League so far this season is new boy Daniel James.
  • In the four games played so far this season Leicester have increased their goal tally by one each time. That would mean scoring four here to continue the trend.
  • Even with all their supposed problems, Manchester United have still managed to score in every single Premier League game this season.
  • Only six clubs have won the top flight title in England since the inception of the Premier League in 1992. Both these clubs are members of that select group.

Our Prediction for Man United vs Leicester City

A score draw at old Trafford

Fans of other clubs are taking great pleasure in Manchester United struggling to find a consistent vein of form recently. But Solskjaer’s side are capable of turning on the style – as the comprehensive victory over Chelsea showed. Leicester are looking good this season however and a score draw seems the most likely outcome here.
